Wix is revealing brand-new SEO settings that provide 100% control of important technical SEO data at the page level in one location.
This update offers SEOs and organizations the choice to custom-made craft technical SEO related factors like structured information on a page by page level from one single settings page.
Wix and SEO
Wix at first was called a service that made it simple for companies to create appealing online websites.
However Wix was criticized for lacking fundamental technical SEO abilities such as including structured data.
Over the previous few years Wix focused greatly on website efficiency and SEO.
That effort includes an SEO advisory board made up of trusted folks from the search marketing community who are entrusted with helping Wix grow and improve.

In terms of core web vitals, which is collection of user experience speed metrics, the information is clear that Wix sites outperform popular services like WordPress.
What’s new is that Wix clients can now work out total control of every page but from a single location, making it very easy to
upgrade a site. New Wix SEO Settings The Wix SEO settings does 2 main things from one settings page:
- Offers an introduction of SEO settings across the site
- Offers a method to edit those SEO settings
Wix SEO Settings enable their users to apply technical SEO settings to an entire section of a website or a chosen group of pages.
The big modification is that users can do the exact same thing from the SEO settings at a page by page level, without having to leap around to the page itself.
This change applies to the following technical SEO aspects:
- Meta tags
- Title tags
- Review and edit URL slugs
- Open Chart data
- Structured data
- Inspect indexing status
One concern I had was, what if you customized code structured data and Google later on updates their structured information requirements for receiving abundant bits?
Einat Hoobian-Seybold, SEO Item Lead at Wix addressed that concern:
“As soon as a user is modifying or adding brand-new structure data by hand, it overrides the Wix defaults, but users can reset back to original defaults and be completely qualified for all of the predefined ones at any time.
In any case, Wix has validation on the structured information so if a user is missing a needed field since of the changes they made or Google made, the user will get an alert about it.”
This new performance is currently provided in English and will present to other languages later on.
Wix explains how the new SEO settings work:
“It is accessible from the SEO Tools section in the Control panel, to EN users and will be gradually be rolled out to other languages.
Users are provided with a report of all their website’s meta tags in one place, for main pages and product pages.
They can click on each page to open an editing panel, and tailor the meta tags, URL slug, index status, structured data markup and more for the selected page.”
The feature is currently available for main pages and product pages.
According to Wix:
“The new Wix SEO Settings tool permits users to review and modify their meta tags for each page, along with their URL slug, indexability, open graph tags, structured information markup, robotics meta tags and a lot more– all from one place in the Wix Dashboard.
This update assists users to be more efficient and save time when dealing with their SEO strategy, particularly those handling larger websites, by giving them the flexibility to work faster, smarter, and at scale.
Users can use the new SEO Settings for Main pages and Product pages, with more page types to come such as Blog site pages, and extra features like bulk editing of the meta tags.”

The worth of Wix is the ability to easily develop an appealing online presence that is optimized for search efficiency while alleviating the user of having to handle the underlying innovation.
